Ansaldo A-300 aircraft

»

In 1924, during “Aviation week” the 2nd Air Regiment organized aviation exhibition in Kraków. Among other exhibits the Ansaldo A-300 aircraft was presented. It was equipped with propeller manufactured by Warsztaty Centralnych Zakładów Lotniczych. Another three propellers are visible behind airplane. Due to poor quality of manufacture and frequent accidents the A-300 were called “flying coffins”.
